Description

Class Experience

Students will have a good understanding of what life is like on the International Space Station and what it takes to become commander of the ISS. Learners will also understand the basic comments of a satellite. Learners will also learn a form of writing of book reviews. 
I have served as a middles school teacher prior to my current career as a lawyer. 
It is recommended that the learner read the book “Endurance: Young Reader’s Edition” by Scott Kelly prior to the class bit is not required. There will be spoilers discussed. 
Learners will need to have obtained their own copy of the book and have the following supplies on hand: 1) paper and pencil. 2) For the satellite design, learners may choose to sketch their design or build their design. For sketching, paper, pencil, or colors/markers will be needed. For building their design, learners can use anything from plastic bricks to recyclable materials like juice boxes, straws, cardboard, etc, to snacking materials such as rice crispy treats, toothpicks, candy, etc. Learners will likely need scissors and a glue stick or tape for building depending on their materials. The satellite has 5 main components so at least 5 separate pieces of material are needed. 3) For the moon/planet selfie, learners will need a cardboard tube like from a toilet paper roll, paper towel roll, or foil wrap roll, etc., and a camera.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner will receive a certificate. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Grown ups may help construct the satellite or take the moon/planet selfie, but may not appear on the classroom video due to OS policy.
